We bought a season pass last year for us to use with our grand daughter who is two. It was great. She rode ponies, went on the train ride and loved the barnyard area too. She played in the children's area which was equipped with little tractors and tot cars to play in. They also have a play table loaded... More

Our visit was on a cold winter day just before Christmas. The park is decorated nicely for the holidays and it is really geared appropriately for families and young children. Our two nieces had their faces painted in the Huntoon House building and they loved exploring all of the different buildings, activities, and displays. Of special interest was the blacksmith...

We love Blackberry farm. So much to do for little ones there! Playground, Train rides, tractor rides, paddle boats, merry go round, and sooo much more. All for a decent price. You could spend a whole day there with a picnic lunch. Nicely run and always clean too!

Blackberry Farm in Aurora is a perfect outing for a family with children. When our oldest grand-children became teen-agers they completely lost interest, but we're so glad that the younger ones still love the place. Every year there seem to be more attractions, and it is amazing that admission is still so reasonable. Being right across the street from a... More

Did you ever go someplace and think "this is it?" You won't have that experience at Blackberry Farm. One admission price buys you more activities than can be crammed into a day. They have train rides, hay rides, pony rides, petting zoo, carousel, fishing, museums, the list goes on. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. You'll love your visit.

I took my kids to Blackberry Farm throughout their childhood and we have many happy memories. In recent years they've done much to improve the children's playland and kept all the historical buildings we remember. Don't forget that they have special weekends in the fall and near Christmas!

Blackberry Farm Village (a part of the Fox Valley Park District) is a great way to spend a summer day, with pony rides, an old fashioned carousel, paddle boat rides, a train ride, hay ride, and a chance to see a bit of what life was like in pioneer times, and around the turn of the 20th century. If your... More

I absolutely loved Blackberry Farm. I highly recommend it for anyone with young kids.! We were there today (a Friday in September) and there were no crowds at all. My son loved touring the log cabins, pottery house, schoolhouse, and the blacksmith shop! The demonstrations were age appropriate, interactive and fun! Everyone working there was friendly and fun. The crooked... More

My family and I enjoyed an afternoon here. My two youngest enjoyed the pony rides. The carousel was broken most of the day, when it was finally fixed, crowds overwhelmed it making it nearly impossible to enjoy. The grounds are beautiful but the employees are not very enthusiast, the teenage employees seemed bored and not approachable. The guy working on... More

This pioneer village has a small train and carousel to ride, as well as ponies. Then there is a schoolhouse, blacksmith, and potter that kids can check out and interact with. Property has a small home that one can tour to see how people lived in the 1800's, and there are a few animals to pet as well. Be sure... More
